The Muppets have been a treasured family group of characters for many years. These hilarious puppets were created by the talented Jim Henson back in 1955. They first appeared on a local DC show and moved into commercials and late night television spots. In the late 1960’s the characters began to appear on Sesame Street and families fell in love with them. It was no surprise when the Muppets got their own TV show in 1976. Since then, several movies have been made, the latest of which is Muppets Most Wanted. Lucky for us, this fantastically funny addition is now available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD, DVD, Disney Movies Anywhere, and On-Demand.
The Muppets are back in the globe-trotting, star-studded musical comedy adventure Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted,” available August 12th, 2014, from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey, this must-own family film makes its in-home debut with THREE versions of the film: The Original Theatrical Cut, the Statler and Waldorf Cut, and The Unnecessarily Extended Cut, featuring hilarious bonus content, plus more music, more mayhem, and more Muppets! The #1 comedy in America three weeks in a row, “Muppets Most Wanted” picks up immediately following the events of the smash hit “The Muppets,” as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and the entire Muppet gang head out on a world tour.
